South Dakota State Incentives

The ETHANOL INCENTIVE BILL (SB196) passed during the 2011 legislative session. Through a partnership with the ethanol industry, this legislation repurposes funding to secure additional capital for the Revolving Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Fund. The REDI Fund is one of South Dakota’s primary economic development financing tools. In addition, through an incentive program created by SB196, $3.5 million in funding will be provided to encourage additional ethanol consumption and blender pump installation.

AGRICULTURAL PROCESSING AND EXPORT (APEX): In 2011, the legislature reduced the interest rate on the APEX loan program to 3percent.

MICROLOAN EXPRESS PROGRAM: The GOED recently introduced the MicroLOAN express program which streamlines the MicroLOAN application and approval process.
